The Honour Roll commemorates those from the district who served in World War One. The roll was originally unveiled in 1917. 

The residents of Hall's Gap attended in strong force at the Public Hall on Saturday evening for the purpose of taking part in the unveiling of the honor roll for the soldiers of the district who had enlisted for active service. Although the district is only a small one seven lads have shown their patriotism by enlisting and taking their share in fighting the Empire's battle. The honor board is a beautiful polished oak board, with relief carving and the names of the soldiers, as follows, engraved in letters of gold : Corp. C. W. D'Alton. Corp. L. P. Warren. Pte. F. E. Warren (killed in action) Trooper J. C. Cumming. Pte. S. Smith. Pte. J. K. D'Alton. Pte. W. Cumming.
